After growing up the son of a preacher man Charles spent over ten years as an EMT/Paramedic serving his community and saving lives. These experiences gave him a passion and plenty of material to share what he learned with others and to "Help Others Be Awesome" as a comedic motivational speaker. When discovering podcasting in 2005, he began building his career in this new media. Since then he successfully developed multiple live shows, created content & produced episodes for others, strove to bring live broadcasting to the podcasting community, and became a significant part of Adam Curry's No Agenda Global Radio. During his career Charles has been featured on multiple shows as an expert in the live experience, building a team, an author, motivational coach, comedic motivational speaker, and self-branding.
Currently Charles is the Co-host and executive producer of "Success Freaks." A 2011 & 2012 Podcast Awards finalist, Success Freaks entertains & edifies with its charismatic co-hosts, captivating sense of humor and positive, thought-provoking content. He is also the co-author of "Success Freaks Guide to Dream Hunting", a featured keynote speaker, the Master of Ceremonies for many events including a community building fire fighting competition, the executive producer for the Livelihood show, and a phenomenal comedic motivational speaker. In everything he does Charles uses his energetic sense of humor and creative coaching style to inspire others to Level Up – their businesses, relationships, and their lives as a whole. He continues to change lives, this time with his voice instead of his medical skills.
Key Note Speeches:
"Help Others Be Awesome" - This is a simple idea that not only do we miss in our everyday lives, we have been taught that it is counter productive to help others. In this speech I will not only show you how helping others will improve your finances, relationships, and bring you the most enjoyable life. I will share stories from the rocky start to the success filled romance of my 12 year marriage, how I have gotten every job I ever wanted and became a legend in each, and how I enjoy my life everyday simply by "Helping Others Be Awesome." Then you will get practical steps to achieve the life that you desire. Q & A session is encouraged.
"The 4 Horsemen of Success" - I will speak about my own guide to Leveling Up Your Life. This includes Level up Your Life, Always be Learnin' yo, Embracing Failure, and a portion of Help Others Be Awesome. As with everything I do you get real world, real life stories and practical steps to change your own life. Q & A session is encouraged.

As a Master of Ceremonies I excel at keeping the pace of the event energetic, keeping the audience laughing while being educated, and I am the most comfortable when things go off schedule and I have to fill for time. Your audience will leave loving your event and eager to be at the next one.
You will always get a heart felt performance full of energy and passion. With the stories I share I bring a human connection that makes the audience laugh and analyze their lives at the same time. In every event I do I bring clean up lifting humor that all can connect to and leave the audience with something to think about. I really love when an event/venue allows time and space for questions and answers. There is something powerful about giving individuals opportunity to ask for and receive specific steps to their own lives. Questions allow opportunity for new information and education to be shared. From me you will get passion, excitement, humor, and insights that will change your world.
